First flower, so pretty!

This is some garlic I planted on a whim last fall. Wonder what is going on with this plant? It looks like there is a clove starting to form mid stem?
Herb garden, got some feverfew starts and a camomile plant
The rest of the herb garden, parlsey, oregano and catmint all doing great. Oh there is some sage seedlings in there too.

Purple sage, rosemary, oregano and thyme.
Lemon balm growing, I love the smell of this! But what are the leafy plants growing among the lemon balm? They are from our mystery seeds for kids packet and have several locations in the garden. I am hoping they are flowers?
Basil tucked in among the tomatoes doing well.

White yarrow along outside of garden.
Mystery plant growing among the seeds for kids with the little white flower on top, anyone know what this is? ***It is Buckwheat!
What are these little black bugs eating happily on my tomatillo plant? If I spray it with soapy water, they stay away until it rains, but then they are back.

Here is my little turtle dove in the garden again. I love those birds!

Mystery plant growing in the seeds for kids area, spinach maybe?

This mystery plant has beautiful green leaves, but I have no clue as to what it is?

Looks like the garden is growing well so far. Nice pictures. I found your blog from your MDC post. I have a semi-garden blog too at

marigolds are your mystery plant. They are good at keeping bugs away.

Thanks Cathy & Ali. The marigolds still have not bloomed, but are so tall, some almost 2 feet. I picked a leaf and I was amazed by how the leaves smell like marigolds even with out the flowers!
